Vietnam promotes roof-top solar power via launches online platform

The Southern Power Corporation under the state-owned Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) recently launched the online EVNSOLAR platform for roof-top solar power on 9 September.

According to a news report, EVNSOLAR provides comprehensive solutions for potential investors, including both households and enterprises, in developing rooftop solar power. Thanks to the platform, customers will have easier access to contractors who can offer reasonable prices, as well as banks and financial organisations that provide credit support solutions for installing rooftop solar systems.

The contractors joining the platform must commit to providing products and services that meet the quality of German evaluation standards. Soon, the platform will be developed for mobile applications and its tools and technologies will be further improved to promote connection and interaction among users.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, the General Director of Southern Power Corporation, Nguyen Phuoc Duc, expressed his hope that the EVNSOLAR platform will contribute to the development of root-top solar power, thus promoting the use of renewable energy and protecting the environment.

Over the past several years, the government has developed many policies to encourage the development of renewable energy, including solar energy in general and roof-top solar energy, in particular. As of the beginning of September, nearly 50,000 roof-top solar power projects have been installed and put into operation nationwide with a total capacity of approximately 1,200 MWp.

Vietnam also recently collaborated with Japan to address climate change mitigation and adaptation, marine waste management, environmentally sustainable cities, and air and water pollution.

The Vietnamese Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Tran Hong Ha, and Japanese Minister of the Environment, Koizumi Shinjiro, discussed cooperation between their ministries at an online meeting on 28 August. The ministerial-level meeting between the two ministries formed part of the sixth Vietnam-Japan Environmental Policy Dialogue.

The two sides also plan to work together in environmental protection for chemical activities, environmental technology, measurement, reporting and verification (MRV), low-carbon technology, biodiversity preservation, and other issues regarding environmental protection and improvement.

In his remarks, the Vietnamese minister lauded the support in different forms of the Japanese ministry and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to Vietnam in the processing of amending the Law on Environmental Protection. He suggested the two countries adjust cooperation contents in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic posing challenges for both nations and the world at large.

The minister urged both sides to step up cooperation in climate change response, natural disaster combat, environmental protection, and ocean plastic waste management. Minister Koizumi expressed his hope that Vietnam will work with Japan towards the goal of reducing the use of fossil fuels, and in managing, collecting, and treating marine plastic waste.

On this occasion, the ministries signed a document extending their bilateral memorandum of understanding on environmental cooperation, which reiterated the significance of actions aiming to implement the Paris agreement and sustainable development goals rapidly and successfully. Within the framework of the dialogue, the ministries also held a meeting to review their cooperation and map out orientations for their partnership in the time ahead.
